The Historical House is a unique trilogy of novels by three highly regarded authors. Each novel charts the life and times of the house at 6 Chelsea Walk, London, and the girls who lived there through three important periods of history. Synopsis When 13-year-old Polly befriends two suffragettes in the top floor flat at 6 Chelsea Walk, she finds herself questioning the views of those around her. The Votes for Women campaign strikes a chord with Polly and she becomes determined to join the suffragettes' protest march, even if it means clashing with her family...

Historically strong, these are also dramatic stories with a real sense of atmosphere. --Julia Eccleshare, the Guardian Children's Books Pick of 2004If anyone can make history come alive for younger readers, it's Linda Newbery and Polly's March... does that superbly. --Helena Pielichaty

    I find it really hard to review this book properly, because there’s so much I could say about it that would just get in the way of the fact that it’s a terrific story.Polly lives in a period of our history – less than a century ago – when women didn’t have the vote; and she’s reached an age when she starts questioning why ‘the place of women’ is to do what men say. Into the flat upstairs move two women whose lives are taken up with just these questions, and Polly is drawn to them – until her stern father forbids her to have anything to do with them. Should Polly simply accept her position in life, or should she stand up for what she believes in?Newbery skilfully balances several interconnected themes without once letting them get in the way of the story, and fills in the background without giving in to the temptation to teach or preach. Under the blurb on the back, the Weekend FT is quoted as saying, ‘Newbery writes wonderfully’, and having read this I can only agree.
